paintball quest, AAA
personally i think that AAA is alot better but that is my opinion( i cant fit anymore in below so i will tell you that the reffs were tough talking us throughout the day in my onpinion just to try and push are buttons( but ya know it happens)
OK i drove up to this place and saw the fields. my first reaction was that there fields were excellent. then we signed in for the tourney and it took alittle while to get going. we got are line up for the first four games and it was tuff but we thought we could pull it off. But this was before i knew how bad the reffing would be.I will try to explain how unfair and grudge holding thease refs were. In the first game there was a 1 for 1 which they decided after the game was over and our team had hung the flag causing us not to get those points. well the way they handled this was extreamly unproffesional so my teamate did loose his temper but thats no reason to totally be jacka$$es the rest of the day. After that was over we kept kewl-but the last game the reffs all circled us and were telling us that WE were being unnapropriot(dont know if i spelled this one right) and still i was trying to let it go and say how sorry i was for th first game......but no they wouldnt have that he told me to "shut up and get off the field" so we did and then they called me back to sign the sheet and at a last stich effort i tried another apology but he said that i was doing it throughout the day and to just get off the field. This ref is a bad example of one. I will NEVER play at this field again
Ok I'm going to very nice and profesional in this statment. The three bad reviews writen were from all three players on the same team. Ok you got a call aginst you! It was toward you and you thought it was unfair? Guess what... any call aginst a team or member of that team would would be concidered unfair! Any one would! As far as we being biased? Ok for any one that has refed a tourney once a team showes thier A__ they will be watched like a hawk for the rest of the day! you can see it happen at any tourney. And for the comment of the REF's goofing off? I saw more goofing off by the players then the refs (goofing off between games isn't a bad thing, infact it will sometimes defuse an attidude of a ref ) next matter.... Late starts? I say BS. Captian meeting went off as planed 9:00am, then the refs meeting, then we got right to it! infact the prelims we done by 11am . Yes we called a break (have you stood non stop on the field with out water ect for hrs at a time? No teams get to come on play for a max of 5-8mins and then go back to thier tents and drink, eat, and relax untill thier next round! And just for a point for the whole paintball world to know we had 12 teams started at 10am and was finished by 1:30pm and if you can keep count that 38 games including the finals! And with only one incident (and like I said the three BAD reviews were from the 3man team). And another point. the delays? It was the teams that were delaying US! We called the teams to chrono and to the field fast as we could... the delay was waiting for the teams to get on the fields and such. WE the refs didn't have an issue with it, we did try to hurry the teams onto and off of the fields as fast as we could.
I would like to ask the complaining team a few things: #1 have you ever refed a tourneiment? I doubt it! #2 You stated we were very unprofesional? How profesional was it that your team mate went stomping up the hill throwing his mask, gun, and hopper on the ground yelling out curse words and such? #3 If you think you can do a far more supiour job of reffing come the next tourney! Can you do that?
And as far as players wipeing right infrount of the refs? OK it may have happened I won't contest that. But I will say that #1 a person only has two eyes, and we can not see every sq inch of a person especialy if thier trying to hide the paint. It's called cheating and it happens all the time! It even happens in WORLD CUP! There has been many articals in the paintball mag's about cheaters and such. So if you want to take the fact that you saw a cheater out on someone, then direct that towards the ONE WHO CHEATED! Thier the ones ruining the game for you! NOT THE REFS ON THE FIELD!
As far as being told to get off the field.... In any sport if you argue with a ref you will be "benched", "sent off the field", "removed from the game", "fined in a points". Am I wrong? Baseball, soccerr, football, hockey, ect.
Untill we get and instate "INSTENT REPLAY" you should voice your opinion and see what happens, don't get mouthy, don't curse at the refs or other players. It's part of the GAME! Oh yea thats right "IT'S JUST A GAME!" if you can't handle that then do one of two things go to anger mangt course or quit playing the sport!
I will now say that I was very impressed with the players and the teams at the tournement! I saw some damm good paintball being played and was equilly impressed with the TEAM work that showed during the games!
We at Splatzone Thank you (yes even you who think we are total "jacka$$es") for comming out and playing the tourney and hope to see you all back at another one.
P.S. For the one who said "I will NEVER play at this field again" then so be it. but remember that there will always be another person ready and willing to come to the field and play, and he or she will leave knowing that they had fun and they WILL BE BACK.
haha thats hillarious. yo man i was alittle steamed when i posted that but it was all factual. and i seriously dout that he was throwing his gun and hopper considering that he was borrowing a gun from another player there and would not ever throw down something that expensive of his.....let alone a good friends. and when we said that we saw wiping this happened in a game( i sat out this game but all three of my conpanions said the exact same) he was snap shooting the guy and he thought he hit his hopper a ref was near watching and he saw the player go back down as he was yelling paint check on him - he comes up ten seconds later clean as a whistle and preseads to shoot my guy out. after the game was over all three of the players heard destinctivly the reffs say to the guy " ya know i could have called you for wiping but i didnt " this baffeled me. thats were me and the other three reviews got that the reffs like treated us unfair all b/c of the insedent in our first game . like i said many times i opologized for the player on my team that was hot headed - and i am still sorry for our attitude but the treatment we got when we were trying to apologize was uncalled for. and i wish that we could have things good between my team and your staff but i dont think that that will happen. i wish you the best in the future
I was also at this tournament and while I am not going to go into what I think of the situation of debate I must say I left with a bit of a bad taste in my mouth. My team, Team Killshot, played at your field the week before the tournament and had a great time. I like your fields and everyone was great to us. However, at the tournament I had two refs act like jerks to me and I was in no way disrespectful to either of them. I realize that they have a tough job but they really should not be rude to the people patronizing your establishment. I am not as upset as the guys from the Destroyer Kidz but I was disappointed. I hope our experience will be more like our first the next time we come and play at your field.
mikey you are wasting everybodys time by attacking my teammates review like that so now we have to set you straight, first off to anyone who reads this these reviews truthfully reflect our experience at splatzone, and our opinion is shared by most of the teams out there, including several of the ringworm players (who were the best team out there and won i believe) also, my team has reffed events and we are reffing some in the future, we encourage damage to throw a team out there so they can see what a smoothly run, fair tourney is like. also i did not throw my gun, i did throw my mask and i may have overreacted, but it was a unfair call and shouldnt have been made in the first place
